School board hears more about EMR/LD
The Donegal School Dis-
trict has established a
separate educable mentally
retarded (EMR) class in the
high school, it was an-
nounced at last Thursday’s
school board meeting. The
new class, consisting of 14
students, will be under the
instruction of Mr. Kermit
Norris. Mr. Gayne Deshler
is in charge of a junior high
Mr. Norris spoke to the
board, expressing both his
and Mr. Deshler’s thoughts
on the change. Mr. Norris
told the board that he and
Mr. Deshler were dis-
appointed in the decision to
separate the classes. He
described the split as ‘“‘a
regression to 1970.”
He told the board that
both he and Deshler ‘‘feel
insulted that we were not
consulted in this decision.”’
Norris said that with twenty
combined years of special
education teaching in the
Donegal district, he felt that
the teachers should have
been involved.
“This item upsets me,”’
he told the board. ‘‘The last
minute nature is up-

The board, at last month’s
meeting, instructed the
administration to explore all
alternative possiblities for
the education of children
with learning disabilities,
and to act as the administra-
tion saw fit.
This action was prompted
by the presence of many
parents of learning dis-
ability (LD) students. The
parents did not want the

Donegal football team
struggles for 7-7 tie
The Indians had 14 first
downs, Solanco had 6. The
Indians had twice their
opponents’ running yardage
and a vastly superior
passing game.
Sounds as if the Indians
won, doesn’t it? But in fact,
they barely managed to
struggle to a 7-7 tie against
the Golden Mules last
Saturday evening.
Donegal’s problem was
penalties—10S yards of
penalties, all committed by
the Indian offense. Penalties
canceled two Indian touch-
downs and plenty of less
dramatic potential offensive
Defensively, the team was
back in fighting trim.
Solanco managed only one
good run; a 75 yard dash
that gave the Mules a 7-0
halftime lead.
But that was Donegal’s
only serious defensive mis-
take. Jeff Duke led the
defense with 6 tackles, 9
assists, and 1 fumble
recovery. Darren Kolp made
7 tackles and helped out
with 6 others. Ron Kennedy
intercepted a pass.
Penalties aside, the of-
fense had a good night, too.
Ron Kennedy led the team
with 76 yards on 11 carries.
Rick Funk rushed S7 yards
on 10 carries. Steve Bow-
man carried 11 times for 28
yards and Darrel Risberg
tallied 39 yards on 11 carries
(he would have had over 100
yards, if penalties hadn’t
canceled some of his best
Another Indian problem
was fumbles—their first two
fumbles of the year. But all
things considered, it was an
encouraging performance
for Donegal fans, a demon-
stration of the team’s solid
